Heat /Humidity

In response to questions regarding the policy on heat / humidity, the league follows the OSA recommendations and here is an extract from the GLSL Procedural Agreement covering this:

"During a “Heat Wave” Game Officials will confer with Coaches and Team Officials before the start of the game in regards to providing water-breaks, consider shortening the time played or postponing the game if both coaches agree to do so. During games, Game Officials are encouraged to incorporate a water-break during injury stoppages, penalty kicks, goal kicks, and other appropriate stoppages, etc., to address this concern of ensuring the health and safety of our athletes. "

Conditions can vary depending upon field locations, start time, conditions, etc., so it is best to discuss how to handle the heat before the game starts.
